Recently, GPD has launched a campaign on Indiegogo for its GPD Pocket laptop which is actually a 7-inch pocket computer powered by Intel Atom processor. As we told that it is a pocket PC, it means you can easily carry it around in your pocket and not only that even it runs Windows 10 and Linux as well.
This Mini Pocket PC Runs Windows 10 & Ubuntu Linux
You may not remember, but there was a time when the words “pocket computer” were in vogue. The idea of putting your hand in the jacket and taking out a mini-pocket laptop with which to work and answer emails seemed the future of computing.
However, when we think of a 7-inch screen, the first idea that comes to us will be that of a tablet and at least not of a PC. Now that we have smartphones capable of doing all that and more, the idea has been somewhat outdated. But that does not mean that it does not continue to have potential.
But the truth is that this is an offer that exists and is one of these that we are making known today. Yes, you will be amazed by the communication features and interfaces that Pocket GPD integrates.
The Pocket GPD actually came out of a crowdfunding campaign with the goal of being a robust, powerful, yet small-sized alternative compared to large laptops like MacBook or Surface. The Pocket GPD is the first laptop that makes us believe that mobile computing is possible. In fact, it is the first time in more than a decade that the concept could really come true as we wanted. In addition, this small computer still offers the user the possibility to choose the desired operating system between Ubuntu 16.04 LTS or Windows 10.
